With Maryland's win over Nebraska Sunday evening, we now have the final seedings and pairing for the 2015 Big Ten Basketball Tournament. Maryland will face the winner of Thursday's game between Indiana (7-seed) and Northwestern (10-seed).

Maryland will take on its opponent Friday at 6:30 p.m. ET at the United Center in Chicago.

The Terps went a combined 2-1 against Indiana and Northwestern this season, but Maryland won the two games by a combined three points, defeating Indiana by two and Northwestern by just one, both at the Xfinity Center.

The Hoosiers have been struggling of late, losing four of their past five with the lone win coming against Rutgers. Indiana is probably the team Maryland wants to avoid, but they're probably the team the Terps are most likely to face.

Here is our Indiana preview from February.

Northwestern's season has been up and down. At one point, the Wildcats lost 10 straight conference games, but have turned their season around of late, winning five of their past seven. The Terps needed a last-second put back by Dez Wells to defeat the Wildcats in January.
